shu uemura eyelash curlers

shu uemura eyelash curlers (via buyapowa)

These are my absolute favourite eyelash curlers ever. I got my first pair in 2008/2009 I think, they say a pair lasts about a year but I only just got around to replacing them before Christmas. You also get an extra rubber pad for when the one already inside the curler wears out. I did find they lasted a while longer than I was told but after I while I decided to switch to some No7 curlers which was probably the biggest mistake in my makeup life! I don't want to badmouth the brand as I do like some of their products (namely mascaras) but the curlers just seem to want to rip my eyelashes out. They would often get stuck in the corners, always ending in a loss of lashes. Not good!

Having pretty straight but long lashes, there is not a day that goes by without these babies, and I feel stupid having gone without them for so long when I actually knew how good they were! They are super easy to use, feel 'soft' on your eyelashes and keep me looking wide-eyed all day, no matter what mascara I use. These are invaluable to me because if I don't use them, personally I can tell (either other people don't or they are too polite to say otherwise!). They retail at £20 but I got mine for £15 with P&P on via BuyaPowa. They have had them on there again since (and you can request certain items) so I would say it might be worth it to keep checking back on the site in case they get them again. I would happily pay £20 again in the future though as I love them so much!

What do you think of the Shu Uemura eyelash curlers? Do you have a different favourite eyelash curler, and how do they compare to these if you have tried them? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

  2. I've always wanted to try these as everyone says they are better than cheaper eyelash curlers. I use some Cosmopolitan ones which I've always thought are okay but I want these! x

  3. I am ashamed to say i don't use curlers. I don't find i need them as i have a slight natural curl and would find them pointless to use.

  11. Heard alot about these! I don't understand how they can be that great compared to other ones though?! Baffles me! Products obviously have different formulas and ingredients but all eyelash curlers look the same! Maybe that's just me? Do want to try them to see for myself
    Though :)

  13. I bought them in one of the co-buys Buyapowa did today - they ended up doing two! Hopefully I won't regret buying them and saving £5 off the RRP was too good to miss. I had the same problem as you with the No7 ones, although I bought mine with a £5 off No7 voucher so with them costing me only £2 I couldn't really complain lol I'm currently using some Mister Mascara ones which I bought from Boots which are pants. Can't wait for my Shu Uemura ones to arrive xx

  14. I'm guilty of skipping the whole lash curling process but I've heard so many good things about the Shu Uemura curlers. May have to cave now.

  18. I love these! I wish you could get replacement bands though rather than buying a new one each time. I've had mine for ages. They sell them on Sasa, for only about £9! You should try purchase them there next time, especially when they have worldwide shipping offers :)

    1. The mechanism weakens after the bands are used up though, to be expected really! My new pair compared to my old is ridiculous!

    2. Oh really, I should really get a new pair in that case haha. I've had mine for far too long.

  23. Eyelash Curlers are a staple in my make up bag. I've been recommended to get my paws on Shu Uemura ones before but I have to say nothing beats Tweezerman for my stubborn lashes. S.x x www.theraspberrybranch.blogspot.com / @stephanieloulou
